Do you use the video feature on HubPages?
If so, what has your experience been like?
Yes. It uploads much quicker than YouTube, but it beats down the file quite a bit.
I put up some rudimentary animation, and on my set up it gets stuck a bit here and there. If you let it play through first, like you do on a slow connection with YouTube, it just starts over with the streaming and runs the same.
When I put one of my silly animations up, I accidently uploaded an old version. I can't figure out how to swap it for a newer one. I posted a how to question, but it is very lonely. No one has responded, yet.
Personally, I like the idea, and think the management was wise to open up the option. I am working with some young folks in their production company and plan on doing a short documentary on some successful, creative business models as a trailer for a project. The possibilities are endless.
I know some writers balk at the feature, but writing for "film" is a valid venue and has been for many years. Even if you don't use a script, it is still the same thought process.
No, I came to hubpages to write, so I don't see the point... I know it probably is the "future" and so and so forth , but for me it makes no sense, because what I like to do is to write...
I have used it in the past but not for my own videos. It can be a problem if videos are removed by their makers, so I now only use them when I think they'll really enhance my writing. For me, keeping it simple is better.
Call me an old fuddy-duddy, but with the exception of a couple of YouTube vids 100% relevant to the subject of the hub, I don't see the point of adding videos to hubs. Or even worse, calling a hub that contains only a self-produced video a "hub". Hubpages, after all, was established as a WRITERS' site - and a unique one at that! - not a wannabe imitation of YouTube.
IMHO, if a hubber can't convey his/her thoughts, research, opinion, etc. through the written word and perhaps a few well-chosen photos or images, then maybe that person should find another venue. ;D
Haven't really used it till now.
I'm new to HubPages so still learning.
I checked out the learning center about it...I myself am interested in using videos for my future hubs.
I have not felt the need used it yet. I focus on writing and pictures with my hubs.

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have permission to upload? Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

Is anyone making their own videos for hubs?I am almost done making my first one from scratch. I was wondering if other people have ventured down this road. It is pretty time consuming.

I am absolutely distraught. Some of my best hubs contain youtube videos. I have found that anyone logged into hubpages can see my videos without any problem. Today my Dad happened to be looking at my hubs and said "there are no videos here". Stunned, I went onto hubpages and logged out of...
